Apple gives us Preview on the Mac and there’s a way to enter a signature, but it’s limited. What’s really needed is a better way to manage PDFs, handle PDF forms, and drop in a signature the way God intended. Easy peazy.
The Better Signature
Even Adobe’s own Acrobat and Reader apps make digital signatures a multi-step process fraught with frustration unless you do signatures and work on PDFs all day, every day.
For the rest of us there’s PDF Signer, an elegant Mac PDF reader and signature app which does just what you want.
Simple signatures and basic PDF features, including options to sign and counter-sign, fill out forms, add text in any font, size, or color as part of the PDF’s text (not a graphic overlay).
You can scan and drop in a signature, of course, but a signature can also be scribed using mouse or trackpad on the built-in drawing pad (great if you don’t have a scanner or a camera).
One feature in PDF Signer I truly love is the option to rotate an entire PDF document. Rotate? Yes, it’s one click to re-create a document with pages in the right order if they were scanned in in reverse order.
Any PDF you’re working on can be edited, then saved as another PDF file, complete with dropped in text information, and a signature.
Well done. Worth the modest price tag and deserving of all the four and five star reviews.
